The order was shipped and received in a timely fashion. The box arrived totally crushed/damaged taped up all over ,with footprints on it (obviously UPS doesn't care too much what they do with their shipments). Possibly too heavy of an item for them. The desk would look nice if it had not been damaged. Although it is over priced for the quality. The desk top was totaly scratched and indented. I have called customer service for the company and they have told me they will send a new desk top. The other pieces have small marks that I colored in with a black marker as was stated in another review post. The assembly was fairly easy except for some holes missing, but since it's not hard wood , it was fairly easy to make your own holes. The draw closure does not fit very well, but it is mostly opened or has a chair in front of it and is not noticeable. Does fit nicely in the corner.
